Construction has begun!

Big changes here at PBC!

 

Future home of the training center and boarding kennel


I sold my house at the end of last year and closed on my dream property a few months later. PBC officially relocated to 63 Ferry Hill Rd., Granby, MA in June!

Ferry Hill Farm is a gorgeous farm sitting on 18 acres of pastures and woods. Almost ALL of the land is enclosed by a fence, meaning dogs can romp safely and happily through acres and acres. Additionally, a huge, beautiful two-story barn is on site. This will be the future home of a training center and small boarding kennel. Also in the plans is a dock diving pool, an indoor play area for dogs and more.

Construction has begun!

Nomi surveying the construction

We anticipate being ready to run classes and offer boarding in November or December. Ferry Hill Farm is located right off of 202. It’s 15 minutes from Belchertown, Hadley, Chicopee, Amherst, Northampton, & Ludlow. It’s super convenient and a pretty drive.

We are busy updating our class curricula, looking at class schedules, planning for holiday boarding and adjusting our rates, policies, contracts, etc. to suit the new facility.

Have an idea for a class? We’d love to hear from you. Have some input about the kennel? Here’s a survey to gather information about what clients want.

Septic system!

Right now we’re planning on dog training classes for Reactive Dogs, Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Obedience, Advanced Obedience, Rally and Trick classes. We are also considering tracking, barn hunt and nosework options. We will continue to offer Reactive Dog Seminars at least twice a year.

Expect more updates soon as well as getting back to semi-regular blogs for motivation, inspiration, support and practical information for dog & cat training and behavior modification. For now, here are a few pics so you can check out what it looks like!
